I use the Spam Karma WordPress plugin to protect myself from people trying to boost their Google rankings by leaving comments on my blog. It pretty much runs itself, so I never pay it much attention. So I was astonished when today’s SK Simple Digest Report landed in my inbox. SK has caught 5,214 attemped comment spams in the last 24 hours. That’s a comment spam every 17 seconds.
I wonder if any of those were real comments? Hope not, but if yours aren’t getting through, send me an email.
